    Re: Shaver 7-15

    Gear is pretty straight forward. Rods and reels can be either casting or spinning (I prefer casting) in light to medium power (I have ml) with a fast action. Jigging is not the technique for koke...

    Re: scotty 1106 or Cannon Mag 10 STX

    What Seon said is spot on.

    Another feature Cannon has on some is bottom track. Can be useful when you want to keep your bait at a specific distance from the bottom.

    Ultimately, it all gets...

    Re: Your trolling set-up?

    Typically I use 8 or 10lb mono (Maxima, Sufix or Stren) to a snap for kokes and general trout trolling. Use the same line when tying leaders from a dodger or flasher.

    Depending on which...

    Re: Trolling for trout

    A problem many have when first switching over to braid is the belief that if one used 10lb mono, one should then buy/use 10lb braid. People don't realize or forget that 10lb braid is the diameter of...

    Re: Trolling for trout

    If you are using braid as your backing, either spool on 20-30 of mono first or wrap the spool a few times with electrical tape before tying on the braid. Both ways provide bite for the braid to hold...

    Mammoth Pool 4-18/19

    Spent two days fishing here after hearing that the bite had been pretty good. Caught 13, 12 of them browns, up to 20 with most around 17-18, all on Rapalas. Fish had much fuller bodies vs my time...

    Re: Interesting/confusing catch today. ID?

    Beautiful fish!!

    Looks like a rainbow in post-spawning colors to me. Caught a few like this around CA and up in Canada. Fish can get very dark when they are in spawning mode. Meat isn't as good...

    Re: Braided line

    How small of reels are people using? I use Daiwa Lexa 100s, small baitcasters, for both jigging and trolling for kokes. Line capacity is the last thing I worry about since they can hold 130+yds of...
